Remembering Grandma: A Shadowbox of Memories

Our client had this wonderful old photo of her grandmother and family. To accompany it, she brought her Grandma's old gloves and a fun beaded purse. She was very excited about creating something that looked period and interesting. But first, the photo had to be protected properly. We did a Mylar wrap on 4 ply rag board to keep it safe in the environment with these other deteriorating products. Then 4 ply rag boards were cut into shapes that could fit inside of the gloves and purse, both to give them stability, and also to create attachment points in which to mount them in the frame. Ultimately, she was thrilled with the results and now has this attractive display of her Grandma's belongings and a family photo.
